I live just south of
Washington, DC in . That puts me squarely in the Washington Redskins fan zone. They are 2-1 this year and I couldn’t care less. It isn’t that I grew up somewhere else and love another team – not at all – I don’t approve of professional sports excesses, so I don’t watch. I watch college ball and I go to the local farm team baseball games. I won’t pay the big bucks to support the lavish life styles of the rich and infamous. Virginia
Sam Bradford left
and signed a six year contract that is worth at least $78 million. I don’t have anything against Sam and I’m not envious of his success. I’m glad he’s doing well. But I can tell you that it is ludicrous that he makes more money than the guy who came in to bail out MCI WorldCom. Michael Cappellas saved thousands of jobs and steered MCI WorldCom into the successful merger with Verizon. Which person is more valuable to our society? By the way, the base pay for a brand new second lieutenant is less than $34,000.00. Between Sam and that lieutenant, who do we need more? Oklahoma
What is amazing that Sam Bradford, Michael Vick, and whoever the quarterback of the Washington Redskins is now will make millions and not one Liberal will bat an eye. However those two-faced liberal bastards are all over the captains of industry that create and preserve the wealth in this country. If we get out of this Obamanation we are currently in, it will be because the captains of industry grow the economy to eclipse the National debt. Sam Bradford won’t have helped a bit.
It continues to amaze me that people expend so much time and effort on the Redskins around here while their country is going up in flames. If the Redskins were to go to the Super Bowl this year people are going to go crazy but it won’t solve any of their problems. Maybe this is the same kind of thing that the Romans had going with the free bread and gladiator contests. I’m steeling myself to have “Hail to the Redskins” as the background music if these guys get better. However they won’t make my life better. I say “Hail to the Capitalists” as they will be our salvation.
